Volunteer Staffing System (VSS) is a workplace staff support initiative, which is mutually beneficial for both organizational and volunteers’ socio-economic development.
VADO encourages public and private establishments to integrate volunteerism into their managerial and administrative systems, as a form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in contributing to nation building through youth engagement.
Since young people who passionately wish to begin their working careers through volunteering are not paid salaries; it is therefore, significantly important to provide them with engagements that are worthwhile and rewarding. VADO is therefore committed to serve you in this recruitment capacity.
Reduction of Over-head Cost
This system of staff engagement is very beneficial in the area of reduction of over-head cost for your establishment. The volunteers, armed with appropriate orientation, mentorship and training will be invaluable in producing services that would ordinarily cost extra, if it were necessary to employ, train and manage a full staff.
In VADO placements, we ensure that our volunteers possess the needed soft, vocational and professional skills required by the employer, before they are fully engaged for service.
Building of Corporate Public Image
Volunteerism has been internationally endorsed and recognized by the United Nations (UN) and the Nigerian National Volunteer Service (NNVS). Therefore, adopting the volunteer staffing system in your workplace will keep any establishment on the good side of the Nigerian government and the international community at large.
Feasible for Cost Reduction on Fiscal Policies
Every workfare or allowance given to the volunteers will be tax-deductible as the Corporate Social Responsibility of the establishment will be quantified. There is also the advantage of the elimination, or at least reduction, of recruitment costs.
Adopting this innovative staffing system will attract open service-partnership opportunities for any establishment and international development agencies, and as well endorsements that may attract internationally recognized awards and certificates attesting to your establishment, as a volunteer-friendly workplace.
Adopting this workforce engagement strategy will improve your permanent staff performances, enhance collaborative approaches to problem-solving, boost productivity or wider service delivery and create new opportunities for service-partnerships with development agencies.
With adequate role involvement and experiences acquired through on-the-job training; these ‘ordinary’ volunteers can evolve into invaluable managers and directors, eventually playing an important task in your establishment. Hence, VADO shall keep identifying managerial skills and abilities of these volunteers through our service-impact assessment tools.
Corporate Social Responsibility and Charity
By identifying to engage the unemployed in the society as volunteers, it gives your establishment the chance to make a difference in the lives of young people. It serves as a means of paying back to the society by reducing joblessness and providing platforms for youth engagement. This simply means that the workfare or benefits which you may consider for these volunteers will go a long way in strengthening their self-help endeavors.
